Converse Japan has pulled three outdoor-friendly silhouettes from its expansive archives: the Quake, Resistor and Sponge silhouettes. Produced under the label’s Camping Supply line, each model has been reworked from its original design, updated with a bevy of modern components like technical Cordura fabrics.

The Quake, which debuted in 1992, comes in clean black and white colorways. It sees an intricate drawcord lacing system and ballistic nylon uppers, complemented by smooth leather sidewall panels. A ripstop heel pull, suede-tinged rear quarter and a rugged midsole complete the silhouette’s design.

Compared to the Quake, the Resistor — coming in black and olive — sports a long belt instead of drawcord lacing. A large belt is placed at the lateral side of the shoe, sitting adjacent to Converse’s classic chevron and stars motif. Much of the uppers are treated in lush suede, while the tongue, sidewalls and toe cap features a durable ballistic weave.

Lastly, the Sponge boasts a laceless slip-on design that comes with slightly padded collars. Thinly etched mil-spec-style motifs are printed along the sidewalls, accompanied by tonal overlays of Converse’s One Star logo. To complete the shoe, lush suede panels at the toecap and heel, “CONVERSE CAMPING SUPPLY” branding at the rear quarter and an articulated midsole finalize the minimal look.

Converse Japan’s hi-tech Quake, Resistor and Sponge silhouettes are currently available on the label’s website, ranging from $93 – $114 USD.
